LSU-like 'tryout look' flier reportedly draws big backlash at University of Washington _lowres

 

A flier outlining hair, makeup and body "do's" and "don't's" for prospective University of Washington dance team members sparked outcry at the school, according to a Seattle Times report. The controversial flier is similar to one posted by the LSU Tiger Girls team earlier this month on Facebook.

The LSU flier, posted April 9, has the tagline, "Here are some tips to help you achieve 'the look!'"

Comments critical of the flier in Washington began building on Facebook. According to the Times, the negative responses prompted the flier's removal on a Tuesday morning after it was posted the previous night.

“I can’t believe this is real,” UW student Jazmine Perez, director of programming for student government, said via email to the Times.

In a statement, Husky athletics officials said the flier was removed after the department “determined that some of the details and descriptions provided were inconsistent with the values of the UW spirit program and department of athletics.”
